Unofficial results: It's DelloIacono and Nyhan

The unofficial results are up online: Mike DelloIacono squeaked out a win against Jim Baer, 1,153 to 1,042. Rick Cibotti received 792 votes.
In Ward 7, Keith Nyhan easily bested Steve Sawyer, 383 to 95.
The turnout was dismal, as I was predicting: 10.9 percent or 3,356 votes cast. Wow.
St. Hilaire won across the city, in some cases handily. Baer came in second in Wards 1, 6, 8, 9, and 10, and may have been buoyed by the turnout for the race for state representative. DelloIacono came in second in the city's traditionally liberal Wards of 3, 4, and 5. He also came in second in Ward 2 and 7.
Interestingly, in the school board race, out of potentially 10,068 votes, only 3,250 were cast. Doug Magee, who dropped out after signing up, only lost by about 336 votes against Chris Casko. Had he stayed in the race - or someone else run a legit campaign - Casko probably would have lost.
I'll have a bit more analysis later on this week when I get a few minutes of downtime.
